I voted deep.Its our strongest position both in terms of depth and talent.Sundin is a top line center with size and strength.Newy while he may have lost a step is a very dependable #2 center with a history of winning and a solid all-round game.Antropov while still raw could very easily be an ok #2 center but because of the signing of newy will be slotted in the 3rd line spot which is fine.He's still somewhat raw because the injuries he's suffered have slowed his progress but last season he showed that he definately has the on ice presence to take over the role of #2.Continued improvement in both his game and mentality could earn him a 1st line center job,but he has some improving to do first.Reichel may very well be the most talented 4th line center in the league,if someone could inject some heart and soul into him he has the talent to be a very good 2nd line center,unfortunately thats not going to happen so a 4th liner he shall remain.
